Elsewhere, in-form striker Harry Kane has been recalled to the fold following the disappointing Europa League defeat at Fiorentina on Thursday, while Pochettino has once more shown faith in Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason in midfield, with the latter one of five Englishman in the Tottenham starting lineup.
Mourinho has also sprung a surprise by seemingly naming Gary Cahill in midfield in the absence of the suspended Namanja Matic, as the Portuguese aims to win his first piece of silverware since returning to the Premier League club 19 months ago.
Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Bentaleb, Mason, Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend, Kane
Subs: Vorm, Davies, Fazio, Dembele, Stambouli, Lamela, Soldado
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Cahill, Fabregas, Willian, Diego Costa, Hazard
